About the WORK

As you turn the sculpture upside down to shift the blue sand, one of these objects is revealed — either a camera or a quartz crystal. The size of the piece is approximately 9.6” in height with a diameter of 4.5”, donning a run-time of approximately 30 minutes. This is all met with the studio’s uniquely designed packaging, which includes a semi-translucent sleeve, die-cut foam so the piece doesn’t shake around when housed, sealing label, and a pair of white art handling gloves. The packaging will also don a holographic label for authenticity measures. (Source)
